I still have my G4, okay marker.  Gas hog.  Never had to contact DP for help.

G4 was a POS, don't think I've ever seen one work for a whole day without breaking.

G3 was alright.

Fusion FX is garbage

E1 is ok but not worth buying when the vibe / envy is a thing.

Older ones were pretty solid.

Never used / had experience with the revi or g5

G5's have been decent.  Still somewhat of an air hog.  

 

Big problem on the G5 is if someone attaches a SHP air it pressurizes the marker over limit and blows out a bunch of seals.  Regular 850psi work just fine, normally people don't know the super high output or whatever they are called (1100psi) aren't for most markers.  They make a mistake when they buy new and blow some seals out.  

 

G4's had some macro line leak and some bolt stick(hard o-ring), neither a big deal.  Biggest user problem was lack of maintenance on the reg and over pressure to the solenoid killing it.  If maintained normally and macro line replaced it's a solid gun.  

 

 

 

I think the big thing that caused a lot of the hate other than a leaking or sticking marker right out of the box was DP's customer service, or lack of.

How many people even have SHP regs though? And TBH if they were smart enough to buy an SHP reg for an R/Ted Mag or Tippmann I think theud be smart enough not to put it on a macroless LP electro.

It's normally someone getting into paintball and they buy the SHP tank with marker not understanding.  I read it a few times in the reviews multiple web-sites.  Not very common but has happened to more than just 2-3 people.

I love my G5, but if I were to upgrade then I would probably go with a Bob Long Insight or Planet Eclipse LV1...

Well I'm glad you told us what Hustle thinks. We can all go home now guys, thread's done.

 

Hustle only cares about PE and CCM. They pander to fanboys, I would take anything they say with a huge grain of salt.

Owned several g4s and all have lasted years. If you've never owned one yourself, then shut up.
G3s are great, I have a few of those as well, and have also lasted years.
FXs I've not owned, but having been a dedicated member of the Dangerous Power group on PBN, they are solid performers after DP fixed their bolt problem.
E1s are a poor man's g3/g4, which means you must be reeeeeaaaallllly poor.
Older fusions are still amazing markers, they are made from stronger aluminum than the FX, and can really take a beating.
Revi, owned one, loved it, a very smooth spool comparable to GEOs of the same year.
G5, a macroless G4 in essence, I love macroless.

There are upgrades that are a must if you plan on getting the best performance out of the G-series markers. TechT has a bolt engine that really helps eficiency and A.P.E. And Virtue make aftermarket boards that, when used with the TechT really turn the G-series markers into little monsters.

A new company financed largely by a good friend of mine is very soon to becoming out with another engine for the G-series that will greatly outperform what TehT has made and it will be less than what TechT is charging for theirs. TFG is their name.

I might actually consider sniping a Cheep G3

A g3 with a new board, trigger and TechT bolt is so good it's not even funny. And they're cheap as shit even upgraded that way.

The g4 is loud but functional, reseting the macro line connections is annoying though.  On another note I was wondering what would a used G4 and E1 *needs orings replaced to fire* would go for and if having them signed by greg hastings and mike adds anything to that price.... Also a new tippman A5 -signed too and old BT Delta, didn't think it was worth making a new thread for.

luxor 54, yes you may have his cookie, predator 47, no, i posted my comeback as soon as i noticed, i do have a life out of paintball, so, if it took me 26 days to reply, its because i have other things to do, you know, wife, work, other hobbies, grown up stuff. you will get there.
